Sara’s Story

Hi, my name is Sara, and I am a Play Therapist and qualified Social Worker. I have two beautiful children Katie 17 and Elise 20 and live on acreage in Woodhill.

I have a genuine love for people and animals and at present I have three dogs, three cats and a goat. Come Easter I am going to be the proud mama of three boy alpacas!

My passion for people has meant that I have been in social work now for over 20 years and had a range of differing jobs which I have absolutely loved! From working alongside the elderly, working with children and their parents and have been privileged enough to work as Social worker in a school for a number of years.

Originally from New Zealand my family and I moved over in 2013 and have called Australia home now for nine years. We moved to a rural area, south of Brisbane nearly two years ago and love our little bit of paradise.

My Passion is Trauma and early intervention with our kiddos through the experience and language of Play! Play Therapy is a wonderful way our children can continue to communicate with us through their own means that makes sense to them.


Often children find it difficult to talk about how they feel. Play is a very natural way in which a child explores the world and finds solutions to everyday problems. 

Through Play therapy the child develops autonomy to take control back over their life and resolve whatever is causing distress to them, at their own pace, and through a medium which is comfortable, natural and familiar.

Contact Sara, your play therapist, who can assist with any questions you have.

"Children need at least one person in their life who thinks the sun rises and sets on them, someone who delights in their existence and loves them unconditionally." Pamela Leo

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood,”
Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers.

Play is so important ...especially through these uncertain times it allows for children to express their feelings, concerns, and worries.
